About Core Material

I have been dreaming of making this piece for years, ever since it was served as an hors d’oeuvre at a dinner party I was invited to. I’ve just figured out how to make this stuffed pasta pouch and wanted to make it in bronze. However, I had to use core material.

Core material, too, does not burn well inside carbon. I had problems firing cork clay and spaghetti. However, as with glycerin, if you cover it with just a little carbon and fire without a lid for the first phase of the firing schedule, it will burn just fine.
